Phil, one of the leading scorers for Team USA in the 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympics, was mysteriously left off of the Team USA roster at the World Cup. Even before his hand injury was revealed it was shown that he wasn't considered for a role on the team. It was puzzling and Team USA probably could have used him.
After Team USA's embarrassing defeat at the hands of Canada, marking yet another in the World Cup, Phil took to Twitter and shared a thought.
Just sitting around the house tonight w my dog. Felt like I should be doing something important, but couldn't put my finger on it.— Phil Kessel (@PKessel81) September 21, 2016
Enjoy your time with your good dog, Phil. You've won.
Not too far behind with the silver is this roast from Team USA sledge hockey player Josh Pauls:
Really glad I was born without legs. The US sled team has a much better track record of success than the US stand up men's team....— Josh Pauls (@spudsusa27) September 21, 2016
Pauls won Gold in the 2010 and 2014 Paralympic games in Vancouver and Sochi respectively. Maybe USA Hockey should start listening to these two voices instead.
